Thoughts on Leadership: Short-Term Memory

I was thinking about what I wanted to write for today’s [at press time] post, and a topic came to mind we’ve never really discussed before: memory. I was diagnosed with dyslexia before doctors and researchers even knew what it was, but even with dyslexia, people always remark how sharp my memory is—and in fact, the two are purportedly related. In a 2013 study, Enhanced Recognition Memory … in Children with Developmental Dyslexia, researchers compared the performance of a group of 11-year-old dys...

Former cubicle dweller embraces his passion as a chicken farmer

Paul Greive was tired all the time. He had joint pain. And brain fog. At 26 years old, having just wrapped up a deployment in Iraq, the Marine Corps intelligence officer was now being told by doctors that the Lyme disease he contracted in sniper school might linger forever. Get used to it. This was 2009 and the anti-inflammatory paleo diet was all the rage. What did he have to lose? “Two weeks in, I felt like a kid again,” says the former All-American college track and field star. “My joint pain...

No. 1 tax tip for 2020 returns: File early

With each new year comes a predictable series of traditions – the Oscars, Girl Scout cookies, NBA playoffs and the April 15 tax deadline. As with everything else in our new normal, this year’s events will be managed a little differently. The Academy Awards ceremony has been postponed to the end of April, and films will be streamed online instead of screened in theaters. We do not expect the Girl Scouts to visit our office with their addictive little Thin Mints. They will practice their sales tec...

Making sense of the Lakers’ lineups and minutes shuffle

Editor’s note: This is the Friday January 29 edition of the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter from reporter Kyle Goon. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. LeBron James doesn’t like to admit when aspects of the game are not coming to him as quickly as he’d like. Early on, he downplayed questions about whether he was physically prepared after a short offseason. He artfully dodges questions about how he keeps his mind sharp. On Thursday night, he went so far as to make the (somew...

Kobe Bryant’s legacy lives on through his teammates who are now coaches

In his first season as the L.A. Sparks’ coach, Derek Fisher wanted to encourage Marina Mabrey, then a rookie on the team, to push through some on-court struggles, to maintain her competitive edge despite inconsistent minutes. Is it any surprise he thought of Kobe Bryant? “I shared the example of Kobe shooting airballs at the end of his rookie year, right, and the choices that he could have made after that,” said Fisher, who won five championships alongside Bryant as a member of the Lakers. “Ever...

Kobe Bryant likely was, at some point, your favorite player’s favorite player

Long before they started launching the 30-footers that would lead to their NBA careers, the basketball dreams of the Curry brothers were much closer to the rim. On a 7-foot hoop, they would trade off imitating roles in one of the most iconic plays they knew: Kobe Bryant’s alley-oop lob to Shaquille O’Neal in Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference finals. As time went on, Steph Curry would try the moves of all of his idols, including Allen Iverson and Steve Nash. But even now, at 32, he acknowledg...

With anniversary of Kobe Bryant’s death approaching, Lakers still wrestle with grief

Even a year later, it’s something the Lakers find themselves reeling from. As LeBron James put it, “I try not to put myself back in that head space, because it’s just too dark.” But the one-year-mark of Kobe Bryant’s death is unavoidable, especially as the Lakers retrace their steps. The team was flying home from Philadelphia a year ago when they were startled awake by the terrible news of the helicopter crash that killed Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven other people. On Tuesday, the anniv...

AJ Moye reflects on going from Kobe Bryant fan to working at his Sports Academy

Kobe Bryant was drafted into the NBA in 1996. That’s the year the love for Bryant began for most. But for AJ Moye, the one-time Master Trainer of Basketball at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, his love for Bryant started in the summer of 1995. “I saw Kobe play in ’95 at an AAU tournament,” Moye said. “I was 13, he was 17.” The following summer, two months before Bryant turned 18, he was drafted and traded to the Lakers. Moye’s summers were spent in Los Angeles with his father. Naturall...

One month in, Lakers have aced ramping up from short offseason

Back on the first day of training camp, Frank Vogel called it “the first big challenge” of the year: strike the right balance between competing and ramping up into shape. A month into the season, with the Lakers mostly healthy and at the top of the league standings, the head coach thinks that challenge has been achieved. Minutes have been down a little from last year, but the Lakers have still gotten great results. “Obviously when we heard the dates come out about how quickly the offseason would...

John Altobelli remembered for winning championships in family atmosphere

John Altobelli left his mark on Southern California baseball. Altobelli coached Orange Coast College to four community college state championships and 705 wins in his 27 seasons leading Pirates baseball.

Many of his Pirates players went on to play at four-year colleges and in the pros, and a few made it to Major League Baseball. Today his signature...
